Control Problems Cause Power Outage

Mary Donaldson/KMXT

Residents in the Monashka Bay and Dark Lake areas were left without power for about 15 minutes this morning. At about 7-o-7 this morning, the Terror Lake Unit two generator experienced control problems which caused it to go offline. Nancy Sweeney, Kodiak Electric Association’s communications specialist says that in order to balance the electric system, some circuits around town had to be shut down until the backup diesel generators were started, which is why some residents were without power. She says they are still investigating what caused the control problems, and that power will be operated by a combination of the Terror Lake and diesel units until the problem is resolved.
